Cooperative learning can include varied settings and formats, but we are going to use it to broadly cover interactive group activities – namely, those in which groups of students work together to solve problems.
If you are picturing a free-for-all setting, like Lord of the Flies, don’t worry. Good teachers remain engaged throughout the process to keep an eye on the work and offer feedback on individual and group performance. Offering clear expectations and guidelines early on will allow students to understand the boundaries and allow more freedom and autonomy to explore the problems inside of these parameters.
A lot of people talk about the importance of networking to land your dream job, which is great. However, not enough people discuss proactively building your network as early as possible, long before you are even thinking about taking your first job. This can have a huge upside. Getting into a good school and landing a great internship, for example, are both much easier with connections in place and will help you land your dream job down the road.
When preparing for college, every student starts with the questions “What degree should I get?” and “What degree is best for me?”
